Installing Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit (From 32 bit)?
I am using Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit. I am planning on installing the 64 bit version soon. Before i do i wanted to know if it could be installed on just one partition
My 500 GB hard disk has about 7 partitions ( C : , D: , E : etc) . If i want to install windows 7 64 bit on the primary C: Drive (Clean install) would it affect the other partitions , which has data on them? ( D: , E: etc?) like erase or not make them function?
also will my external hard disks which worked on 32 bit system (seagate goFlex Desk) work on the 64 bit after i plug it in after the install? all of my externals have my backups and i wouldn't want them erased

Are you going to format over the 32 Bit version on the partition?
Yes your externals will work!
64 Bit version of 7 needs about 20 gigs to install.
Yes i am going to install the new 64 bit over the 32 bit Windows 7 in Drive C: partition. So my other partitions will remain intact and unaffected?
